Withdrawal Pains

by Pastor Steve Ellison

In John 6, Jesus performed a wide variety of marvelous miracles; He also taught some difficult and hard to accept truths about Himself. The crowd that quickly grew because of the miracles left Him just as quickly because of the difficult teaching.

John 6:66-71 records Jesus heart wrenching response in which He probed the disciples to reveal their level of commitment, “As a result of this

My Friend, Jesus

ShepherdCalls_WPA good friend of mine passed away recently. I’ve reached the age when this happens much too frequently. He was a really lovable guy. Built like a teddy bear, he made you smile just by being in his presence. He was an artist, a musician par excellence. He earned his livelihood entirely with his music. He played the organ at his church for more than 50 years.

Quite witty, you

Good Thinking: Battling the Blahs

by Dr. Don Kuehle

The winter has been long. The days have been drawn-out & drab & dreary.  We’ve been kept inside for much too long. It’s too cold to go outside and too tiresome to stay inside. We have “cabin fever.” We’re battling a case of the “winter blahs!”

Is there no way to rid ourselves of the “blahs”? Sir William Osler,  renowned Canadian physician/writer, offers us good advice

Life in the Extreme

ShepherdCalls_WP“We are going to have a temperature swing of 50 to 70 degrees,” he exuded loudly. “That’s extreme!” His reference was to Sunday’s weather forecast. Then he repeated that oft remembered cliché, “If you don’t like the Missouri weather, just wait — it will change.”

His words “That is extreme,” still ring in my ears. Most of our weather is average. We call it normal. In fact, most

Good Thinking: The Brotherhood of Man

by Dr. Don Kuehle  

“We believe in the Kingdom of God as the Divine Rule in human society, and in the brotherhood of Man under the Fatherhood of God.” Thus affirms the Korean Creed.

God’s people have always had a dream! Abraham dreamed of a people who were faithful to the One God. Moses dreamed of a Promised land where people would live together in freedom and harmony. Isaiah dreamed

Drawing a Crowd

by Pastor Steve Ellison

It seems that everywhere I look these days, people are famous simply for being famous. I know that doesn’t make much sense; it doesn’t to me anyway. These people are famous without having accomplished anything at all. Entertainers and athletes seem to be far more interested in drawing attention to self than in actually perfecting their craft. Television ratings, Twitter followers, Facebook likes, etc. seem to
